Hands down one of my favorite summer recipes! We always get huge bumper crops of cucumbers in our garden every summer, and I make this salad for us all to much on a few times a week. Super kid friendly in our house! So simple to make with a minimal amount of ingredients! I use lots  and lots of fresh cracked pepper on mine, but you can use less depending on your taste!

Cucumber Salad

1 large English cucumber, sliced 
1/2 of a small red onion, sliced 
1/4 tsp. salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 T unseasoned rice vinegar
pinch of sugar

1.  Season sliced cucumbers  with salt and pepper. 
2.  Combine the sliced cucumbers  with the red onion slices.  Mix the sugar, if using, with the rice vinegar, and pour over the cucumbers and onions.  Mix well to combine.  
3.   Allow mixture to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.   Drain off any excessive juices that accumulate before serving . Refrigerate .
